Such Bitter Hatred...Anger.Such Bitter Hatred...5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
A steady beat of rising anger.
It was almost as though the primal beat of Zebes' molten heart had fractured, had split, and was slowly but surely making its way up. Devouring all within its path and leaving nothing but fiery caves and volcanic vents; sulphur laden air and a wavering miasma of pure hatred.
Norfair was angry.
And the Hunter did not blame it. She had often wondered if a planet could have emotion. If a compacted ball of rock and mineral floating in its predetermined course around a central star in the dark reaches of space could develop a sort of sentience of its own. Norfair had never been this active, she knew. Not until the Chozo had left. Not until the Pirates had come. Not until the once peaceful twisting maze of alien architecture had been twisted into a technological hotbed of experimentation and abuse. Just as Maridia encompassed Zebes' sadness and Brinstar its abundance of life, still scrabbling for purchase; just as Crateria showcased its desolation and th

Tears streamed down his face as he rembered what happened yesterday.

No, he didn't want that.
He'll do anything to prevent that.
He fell the rest down and bumped his head against the floor.
Everything went black as he whispered one word before he lost conciousness.
One single, simple, meaningfull to him, important to him, heavenly to him word.
It meant everything to him.
Tails dialed IXII.
"I need help, my best friend fell from the stairs, I think he broke his neck, both arms AND legs."
Tails gave Sonics adress.
He wanted to visit Sonic and opened the door after a few hours when Sonic didn't open the door.
He saw Sonic and heard him whisper the one word that was on his mind most of the time.
Tails dialed IXII right after.

All Metroids dead...check.
Alright, time to get this show on the road, I thought as my finger struck the Missile trigger. A projectile streaked out of the Arm Cannon attached to my arm and impacted the red door ahead of me. The door was blown off its hinges, and I stepped inside to find something so familiar, yet at the same time so very alien.
The first obstacle was the array of big red life-support tubes blocking the passage ahead. I hit the trigger again, and another crimson explosive rocketed its way to the target. It may have been a first obstacle, but damned if I've ever seen a tougher one...HOLY CRAP!
I saw the Turret pop out of its hatch on the wall just in time to avoid its burst of machine gun fire. Switching temporarily to my Ice Beam, I struck it again and again with shots that normally froze enemies solid. But it absorbed ten shots and not so much as a lone crystal

It was a gorgeous day on Mobius. Sonic the fastest blue hedgehog was doing his usual running across the meadow-like area.
He looked left and right if his fangirl Amy Rose will show up; apparently she didn’t.
“Why hasn’t she chased me this week? Man, it’s no fun without her” Sonic sighs under his breath.
He didn’t see where he was going as he tumbles down the hill, rocks injuring his body parts which it did really hurt.
“OW!!!” Sonic’s leg was not only injured, it was broken. This pain feels like his leg is crushed by a car tire.
Sonic tries to stand up but his broken leg was not enough to support him. It was too painful to move his leg.
Just then, he heard someone’s voice.
“Sonic? Oh, my gosh! Sonic! What happened to you?!” a pink female hedgehog ran up to Sonic.

Mother Has LearnedSamus shot open the door leading to her final foe's lair. The darkness of Tourian had forced her into activating her night visor, and in each room, whatever light remained from the last faded more and more. Here, though, it was brighter, and Samus could feel, not only see, why. The narrow but tall and also deep hallway was shaking tremendously, and an orange glow was creeping up the walls. She looked down and noticed that she was standing on a platform above the actual ground, and that rising up to her platform was a pool of lava. When she looked up, she saw rinkas, a type of security system that shot ring shaped, plasma encased, artificial organisms at intruders, flying toward her. They were much like white blood cells, except that they could not change directions once they were fired. But they could penetrate walls, so there was no hiding from them. In addition, there were also laser cannons lining the high ceiling that Samus could not destroy. Luckily their aim was faulty, and theyMother Has Learned3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

As I opened the door and stepped through, the worst of all the things about this monster crossed my mind. I strode across the wide, open metal floor of the station's main control deck, the door sealing shut behind me and locking tight.
Across the room, waiting for me, was myself. The abilities I had, so did it, for it was grown from me. The armor it had, it used to be mine. Pure, prestigious orange, signifying the last and greatest in ancient Chozo technology. Sleek lines, perfect construction, ultimate craftsmanship.
It had all been taken from me, twisted by the evils of the X Parasite, its machinations now controlling what had once been a part of me. Now, I stared down my former self, here in this room. I had to kill it. It had to kill me.

Such Thriving Harmony...Life.Such Thriving Harmony...5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Such a mass of pure life.
The Hunter was always surprised at the vast amount of life when she came down here, amazed at the swarming armies of plantlife and native fauna teeming just underneath Zebes' cracked and scarred surface. She was always inclined to believe, upon planetfall, that the Space Pirates had killed everything off with their relentless technology. And why would anyone ever think otherwise? Crateria was barren and dead, constantly awash with that steady drizzle of acid rain. It was all anyone ever saw on first glance. No one would believe that just under the surface teemed so much vigour, so much energy.
Sometimes the Hunter mused that the Chozo had taken the spark of life with them when they had left. They were always so close to that mystical life force that there was a good chance it was true. But then, on boarding that solemn elevator ride down to the underground forests of Brinstar, she realized that it was not true. The life had just crawled down further, awa

And clips and curls
The dancer takes the scene
On toes, on flats
Each heel click-clacks
And the crowd cheers and screams
As your legs beat the stage
And you dance your aches away
The blood is pumping
Your pulse is jumping
And your breath will not breathe out
Your smile remains
And the crowd's noise gains
As you stand perfectly still
You've out done yourself
You've completed your task
Now to get off stage is all that you ask
But the crowd won't stop
And you fear your lungs might pop
But stand as a stone you wait
Just say the call
And save us all
Before we fall and faint
But you're alone and wonder
How that crowd can thunder
And you've saved the day
Though you strut off stage
You feel as the grave
But your smile is still there
You've done yourself in
And you've done it again
You've won the heart of that crowd!
Metroid Other M: A RetrospectiveOr, how Other M does not fit into the Metroid canon.Metroid Other M: A Retrospective1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
It’s been almost four years since the release of the last Metroid game, and sadly this latest hiatus was kicked off, at least for me, on a very disappointing note.
I can’t even begin to explain how much of a disappointment this game was for me, but I’d probably attribute that to the ecstatic hype I allowed myself to fall into in the months before its release.
While the gameplay was pretty decent on its own, the linear style was a huge step down from the exploration aspect Metroid fans have come to cherish. I miss the days of Metroid gaming where I had the ever-present question in my mind; “Where the fuck do I go?”
Despite its linear take, Other M is a decently fun game to play, combining aspects of both the 2-D shooting style of the original games with hack-n-slash elements like dodging and “finishing moves”.
But while the gameplay in itself wasn’t terribly disappointing, (aside from th

She always rubs her mouth,
like there’s a secret she can’t say out loud.
Tracing her own lips to prevent a smile, a frown, or a tear.
Sometimes her real smile peeks through, but you can only see it in her squinted almond eyes; dark amber, and soft, just like that bashful grin.
Sometimes a frown shows when no one is looking, followed by a wistful sigh and a simple wipe of the palm across that silent mouth, trying to push the bad feelings and words away.
Sometimes tears roll past her knuckles; she fails to catch them at the source because she’s scared to wipe her eyes raw, so she brushes them away after they’ve fallen in the crook of her pink lips.
She always hides her mouth,
as if she’s afraid to speak.
She never faces you completely,
like you’re not worth her full attention.
Averting her cold gaze, she walks with a haughty, empty stride.
Even when her striking blue eyes are pointed at you, her chin is always tilted up and shoulder

Pride and HumilityPride is like a mountain Pride and Humility3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Towering o're the plains.
Humility is like a stream
Just one of the River's veins.
The mountain blocks out the Son
With all its glory bright.
The stream brings water to the earth
As it winds from left to right.
The mountain is an idle thing
Sitting tall and fat;
Seen by all, worshiped by all,
But only stays where it's at.
The stream is like a messenger
Spreading to all the word,
The message of Peace, the joy of Hope,
As through this Place we're hurled.
So don't be as the mountain,
With all its power and height;
Be as the stream the River's vein
To spread the Truth, you might.
The Fount of PeaceI fell fast asleep one night,The Fount of Peace3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With cold tears in my eyes.
I had wept upon my bed,
With bitter thoughts inside my head.
It was o're a small, small thing,
Compared with what was to come.
I was in a small, small world,
Considering where it was from...
I was either sleeping, or awake;
A vision, or a dream.
With eyes open or eyes closed,
I saw my Savior. And his clothes
Shown with a great, great light
That swallowed up the dark.
Then somehow, somewhere,
And in some amount of time,
I found peace;
A sweet, sweet peace
That only comes from inside...
I turned to thank my Savior,
Who had given me this peace,
But I was in my room again;
So I got down on my knees.
I prayed a prayer;
A small, small prayer
To thank him for his mercy...
And finally I had found that Fount
To drink from when I'm thirsty.
